You cannot install two SharePoint farms on single windows server. Unless you want to create the couple of VM on servers then you can do. Yes, you can use single SQL server instance for multiple farms. This solution is not recommended for the production farm

The only way you can do this is through Hyper-V where you create a virtual instance, install Windows Server 2012 and SharePoint Server 2013. They can use the same database server provided that you give them different database names, but the best option is to install the new SharePoint on a SQL Server instance of its own. Such as TheOriginalDatabaseServer\...

Backup-SPFarm does a few things: Backups all applicable databases. This also updates the Last Database Backup entry Exports information from the configuration database (which cannot be restored) Backups the search index This is why you see smaller files along side your database backups.

from the error, what it looks like you are search crawl is running. if an active crawl is crawling the content then backup job will struggle to perform a backup. Please make sure that search crawls are idle before backup job started. read this here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/sharepointsearch/2016/05/20/search-ssa-backup-is-failing-sp2013/ also ...

As already mentioned by others, there is no supported way to downgrade from enterprise to standard edition. Possible workaround: SharePoint 2013 has a configuration option called "licensing". You can enable and disable license-depended features for a group of users. HowTo: Enable licensing via PowerShell. Assign Standard-Licenses to all of your users (...

This is normal, since Sharepoint is an IIS hosted .NET application. On the first request all the Application Pools have to be started, dependencies get loaded, etc. Additionally the AppPool-Recycling will tear down everything after some time of inactivity (normally after 30 min.). There are several "Warm-Up" scripts around. You could try this one: https://...

There is no risk to applying the SP3 on the SQL server 2008. But you have to plan it.I would apply the patches in the following order. Schedule a Downtime for the SharePoint I will stop the IIS & timer services so that no connection should make to SQL server while patching. (In one of farm I shut down the server) Apply the Patch to SQL server, test and ...

Couple of steps required in order to configure the MySites. Make Sure UPS & MMS are up and running. Create a Web application and create root site collection with MYSiteHost template in the Mysite Host location at UPA, give the root level site collection address then set the permissions.

Depending on where the Central Administration is hosted (Web Front End or App server), and depending on the target of the WSP package (I'm not talking of the scope of the feature; I'm talking about the "Deployment Server Type" setting of the solution), this may happen. For example, the features contained in the package are only installed on the Web ...

1st you have to login with the farm admin account in order to start config wizard The account which will run service should be domain account. Rest sharepoint will fix the permission for that account. Check this blog for better understanding

If SharePoint doesn't work, because it should, there are a few things to check: Are all your servers part of your test-domain, and can you sign in to SharePoint Servers using a domain account? i.e. TESTAD\SPFarm instead of .\Administrator? Can you access SQL Server from SharePoint Servers? Either you install SQL Server Management Studio Client and access ...

Yes, you can install the binaries on both server at same time. Installation of binaries can be parallel But SharePoint product and configuration wizard is single thread, which means 1 server at a time. Start with Central admin server. Couple of things you have to consider before applying the CU. Do the updates on off hours or a schedule activity as it ...

Back–up content database from the Source SP2010 SQL server and restore it in Destination SP 2010 SQL Server. Make Sure that the new Content DB has corect permissions (read & write). In SharePoint Central Admin create a new WebApplication, (e.g. ttp://application/sitename. Open SharePoint Management Shell and run the command Test-SPContentDatabase -...

I'll add my 2 cents. If event receivers were developed with care and best practices, it should run only once. And always runs on a web front end server (w3wp) in normal circumstances. When you Add/Update list items via Console APP on the server or via PowerShell - the receiver will run as part of the console or PowerShell process respectively. If TimerJob ...

It seems like an issue with loopback check.

Change Alternate Access Mappings in Central Administration Check if the hostname is used in IIS-Binding Change Search Content Sources and perform FullCrawl Check & maybe change MySite Host Location in UserProfileService

Some things to check consider: Add RAM to SQL Server box Decrease the distance between the SQL Server and the SharePoint servers Isolate the SQL Server from other applications--just have SharePoint databases on one server, no other instances or non-SharePoint application databases Point the web servers back to themselves (127.0.0.1) in the HOSTS file. ...

If you update a Listitem in a ItemUpdated EventReceiver and call an item.Update() inside this receiver, you fire new ItemUpdated Events. To prevent this behavior, you can set EnableEventFiring to false. As far as i know, this will disable eventfiring for the entire SiteCollection, but there is no other "out of the box" way to do this :( Disable Events from ...

When you create the site collection, you have two options either create via powershell or Central admin. for that you need a account which is part of farm admin group on the central admin, use that account login to the central admin and create a site collection(s) Now when you create a site collection during that process it will ask you the Primary and ...

You don't need to run the config wizard. We moved the same server in past and follow the same exact steps. mark the Dba readonly and move to new sql server.we did this to minimize the down time. stop the sharepoint so that all connection stop to old server. create sql alias on the sharepoint server point to new server. start the sharepoint test it I ...

As far as I know, short and simple: Once you go Enterprise, you can't go back. One thing I know is, that the issue is that the content database will have these Enterprise features 'baked in' and those can't be changed.

With that number of users, depending on usage, a two SharePoint server farm running all services on each is likely appropriate, given you allocate the appropriate amount of CPU and memory (likely start out with 4 cores and 20GB RAM, then adjust from there as usage changes). For SQL Server, if you only have one, you only have one, but otherwise look at SQL ...

Yes, you need a license for each SharePoint server in a farm. There are licensing options for the Test environments, e.g. MSDN, but the restriction there is only users with MSDN licensing may access the Test environment. Don't forget there are also SharePoint Standard and Enterprise User CALs. Each user using Standard features needs a SharePoint Standard ...

You can loop Farm products: using Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration; // .... class... SPFarm farm = SPFarm.Local; foreach (Guid prd in farm.Products) { if (prd == new Guid("B7D84C2B-0754-49E4-B7BE-7EE321DCE0A9")) { Console.WriteLine("SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise"); } } SP version Guid

You need to create a wildcard managed path named "/my/personal". Having your Personal site host in /my/personal is not a functional design. It should be the root site collection of your web application.

It is depending upon on your design and how you many site collections / web applications you have. 50TB per year is alot of data and required alot of planning. If you read the Limits of SharePoint 2013, ideal content Database size is 250Gb but supported Upto 4TB in different scenarios. That's mean One site collection can go upto 4 TB(as it is limit of ...

This is just a guess, but whenever I've encountered such an error it was usually due to certificate issues. Given the errors you posted...
